While I haven't received the pictures yet (it's been less than 2 weeks since the wedding), I still wanted to leave a review about Tatum. She was amazing! Tatum arrived early to my bridal suite and was able to direct and help get all the shots I wanted. She was funny and helped...

She was able to tell us exactly how to pose to make the shot look good (my husband and I definitely needed the explicit instruction!) Tatum even stayed slightly past her contract in order to get a photo we otherwise wouldn't have gotten. It was a pleasant surprise to look over and see her there!! I can't say how pleased we are with Tatum's services and we are excited to see the images!

I knew I wanted to have images that would be artwork on my walls. I didn’t just want snapshots. When I saw the work Tatum and her team had in their portfolio, I knew I had to have them.

It’s not often the GROOM plans the entire wedding, but in our case it was. Not only that, but my wife also happens to be a celebrity/model/actress from another country! Enough pressure? She is a perfectionist (especially with photos) too! The only “1” thing she asked of me was... Read More that we hired a good photographer. After getting in trouble for letting my best man take our wedding shower photos, I learned that it was necessary to have a professional photographer. My wife desired to share our wedding photos not only with our friends and family, but her country also. At this point “good or great” photography wouldn’t cut it either. Our photos would be featured in magazines and news columns and shared with thousands of people, it needed to be high quality & professional, but we wanted to keep it a secret... I needed to take this seriously.. Tatum was selected by my wife after finding her on “The Knot.” Tatum’s photos spoke for themselves: high-quality (pixels), unique (different), detailed (lighting & good angles), & creative (fun). After selecting Tatum Photo & Design, we received all that and more. She was patient, helpful, & went the extra mile in everything she did as if we were family. …All WITHOUT knowing my wife was a celebrity. Tatum gave us the “BEST.” When the lights went dim and all the family left for home, after the decorations were put away and her dress is put in the closet, we were left with only memories, the Best! If you INVEST in only one thing for your wedding; I recommend it be your photographer, and with all honesty, I recommend my photographer! Thank you for leaving us with professional photos of our greatest moment! I hope that we can work together in the future Tatum! Thank you again for ALL you did, the effort, ideas, and all with the biggest heart! My wife and I will never forget all we went through together! Sincerely, Cinderella Man ; )

Book Tatum Photo and Design!!

The pictures I have from my wedding are not good quality and I am afraid of enlarging them bigger than a 4x6.

Those pictures are not from my wedding day, but they are the closest thing I have to it. I cannot say enough good things about Tatum. She is so patient, caring, and is very passionate about photography! She has an eye of a perfectionist. If you need to adjust your arms, legs, head, hair, etc., Tatum will tell you what you need to adjust to ensure every picture look perfect. I have learned you never go cheap with a photographer. You pay for what you receive. I was trying to keep my budget down and learned photography is not the place to do so. The one piece of advice I can give to Bride’s and Groom’s is to book with Tatum because you WILL NOT be disappointed with your pictures.
